VOTERS GUIDES for the May 4, 2019 Election

Where can I find candidates' answers to questions about the issues?

Printed VOTERS GUIDE

A printed version of our VOTERS GUIDE contains information about the election, voting, and the candidate forum.

The VOTERS GUIDE contains the Richardson Mayoral and City Council candidates' photographs and their answers to four questions. The candidates' responses to the questions in the printed VOTERS GUIDE meet word limits imposed by the League due to space considerations.

In addition, it contains Pro/con information about the $1.1 billion bond election for the Dallas County Community College District, supplied by the League of Women Voters of Dallas.

The printed VOTERS GUIDE will be available as a printable pdf on this website. Printed copies will also be available at:

  • The Richardson Library
  • The Richardson Civic Center
  • Huffhines and Heights Recreation Centers
  • The Richardson Senior Center

Collin County printed VOTERS GUIDES

These two VOTERS GUIDES are now available on their website. Click on the word "Plano" to view responses from candidates for PISD, and on the words "Collin College" to view responses from candidates for CCCCD.

Richardson voters who live in Collin County will vote in those two Trustee elections as well as the Richardson Mayor and City Council election.

League Policy

From time to time, other groups may reference our candidate forums, VOTERS GUIDEs, and/or press releases. The League of Women Voters of Richardson is not in any way affiliated with non-LWV organizations. We never support, oppose, or endorse any candidate for office.

A longstanding agreement exists among the Local Leagues in the area that:

  • The League of Women Voters of Richardson (LWV-R) is responsible for elections involving the Richardson City Council and the Richardson ISD Board of Trustees;

  • LWV-Collin is responsible for elections involving the Plano City Council, Plano ISD Board of Trustees, and Collin County Community College Board of Trustees, among others; and

  • LWV-Dallas is responsible for elections involving the Dallas City Council and Dallas ISD Board of Trustees, among others.

All three Leagues contribute to the Voters Guide questionnaires that appear on the LWV VOTE411 website.
